To round out your week — and your belly — we’ve compiled a list of pop-ups, food trucks, and festivals to satisfy your hunger. We've got two Short Grain sightings (bless!), healthy options like a smoothie bar, and events that cater to both two-legged and four-legged creatures (hey, dogs like beer, too). Check it out.


Hungry for Hustle has a pop-up smoothie bar at the Mt. Pleasant Towne Centre from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., now through May 1. 

From 6-9 p.m., Short Grain will be at Lewis Barbecue, where, in lieu of their usual Japanese food, they will prepare a Mexican feast of tacos, burritos, and a guacamole cart. Cannonborough Beverage Co. and Holy City Handcraft will also be taking over the bar.


Short Grain will serve up their spin on traditional Japanese cuisine at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. from 5-10 p.m. And this Tues. is particularly special with Gullah Geechee Chef BJ Dennis also popping up at EOBC. It's gonna be one beautiful mashup.

At Magnolia Park and Community Garden’s Barks and Brews event, you can enjoy food from the food trucks Area 51 Foods and James Brown’s Famous Boiled Peanuts from 5-8 p.m.


The new pop-up restaurant Spanglish continues their residence at the Daily, Wednesdays (11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.) and Sundays (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.).
